How I made my silver dark gray Boudoir Angel Wings
Boudoir Wings DIY! Below are the steps I took in making my studios client silver dark grey boudoir angel wings. I bought some of the materials at my local hardware store, the copper wire, and fabric store the lace material with elastic straps. The rest I bought online, the feathers (I ended up needing about 400), and the hot glue gun with full size glue sticks.
All in all the wings took me about four days to make. The first day I laid everything out to see how the feathers would lay, shaped the copper wire, and trimmed the lace fabric a little at a time for to achieve it’s form. The second day I hot glued the lace to the copper wire and let it sit overnight. The third day I started gluing the feathers to the lace, taking my time to make sure they were sticking and laying how I wanted.

The final result was amazing, though I don’t think I made the split between the wings wide enough so I will be removing some feathers and trimming the middle split more so those beautiful booties can be seen!
